Stanley Dentistry uses a local anesthetic for certain dental procedures. We use it to numb the feeling in one small or “local” region of your mouth for a dental procedure. It takes a few minutes to take effect and works by preventing nerves from sending pain signals to your brain. It is a convenient method of achieving pain management and can be used in conjunction with mild sedation if you are experiencing anxiety about your procedure. Local anesthesia is what you will usually receive for procedures like small fillings because it lasts a short time, and wears off in a few hours. Lidocaine is by far the most commonly used local anesthetic drug.
We don’t want to toot our own horn, but we are proud of our reputation. We feel that it is a reflection of the hard work and dedication we have committed to our profession, as well as a representation of the passion we have for providing exceptional care to our patients. At Stanley Dentistry, our goal is to earn our patient’s trust and loyalty.
We’re honored to have been awarded 16 best dentist awards by the Triangle community. From the Western Wake County Maggy Awards to the News and Observers Raleigh’s Best, our patients have been vocal in their support!
